No. 1 Star: Carey Price, Canada
For the most part, everyone knew Carey Price would be 'the guy' in net for Canada in Sochi. Some were worried he'd crack under the pressure. They were very, very wrong. Price played in five games and only allowed three (3!!!) goals total on 106 shots. Two of his games ended in shut-outs. He made it look easy and the game against Sweden was no different.
No. 2 Star: Jonathan Toews, Canada
Canada's Assistant Captain Serious scored what would be the game winning goal at 12:51 of the first period on assists from Shea Weber and Jeff Carter. He was second on the team in shots with four. Toews lead all Canadian forwards in average total TOI per game at 17:18; the next closest forward was Sidney Crosby at 16:27.
No. 3 Star: Henrik Lundqvist, Sweden
If it wasn't for King Henrik, this game could have been far worse, score-wise. Sweden's defense was applauded throughout the tournament; today they were subpar, lending Lundqvist minimal support. He stopped 33 of 36 shots as Canada played a near-perfect game.
Honorable mention: Gotta love the irony of Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz scoring their only goals of the tournament in the last game. Both goals were unassisted on turnovers by the Swedes.
Did you know? Only 2 of Canada's 17 Olympic goals were from Eastern Conference players (#westcoastbias)
Dishonorable mention: Centerman Nicklas Backstrom was ineligible to play for the Swedes because his urine tested positive for a banned substance found in Backstrom's Zyrtec-D (for stuffy noses) ... Alexander Steen was on the ice for all three Canadian goals; Jonathan Ericsson, Niklas Kronwall, Loui Ericsson, and Daniel Sedin were minus-2 ... Defenseman Dan Hamuis played one shift for the Canadians for 1:04; the reigning Norris Trophy winner, PK Subban, played zero shifts from the pressbox.
